Beginning with the Student Organization Showcase—a fun-filled barbeque where student leaders promote their clubs and organizations and recruit new members—and ending with the spring Pinning and Hooding Ceremonies—where students are recognized for their dedication and academic achievement—the Portland Campus hosts a plethora of events to make for an academic year you'll find to be anything but ho-hum.

You can also check out Portland’s famous restaurant scene with regularly scheduled “On the Town” nights, or try your luck at one of our bingo tournaments. Worried about exams? Relax with massages, paraffin wax treatments, and other calming remedies during Stress Relief Week. If you’re the adventurous type, the yearly trip to Canada might be for you. And don’t forget about Field Day. Hot dog eating contests and tug-of-war games will remind you that just because you’re a graduate student, you don’t need to give up this time-honored elementary school tradition!
